Selçuk Yılmaz

Selçuk Yılmaz made this lion out of 4000 pieces of scrap metal. I like how the pieces come together to form the contours of the lion, as they help to define the musculature and show the strength of the lion. I also appreciate all of the intricate details such as the toes and the tail. The little directional metal pieces give him movement and interest. The artist hand cut and hammered each piece of metal, and the lion weighs 550 pounds! The artist named him Aslan : )
